Trade Me Anything! 2007 Topps U&H Red Letter Edition

This weekend I busted a Hobby Box of 2007 Topps Updates and Highlights. It was a really fun experience, but I was left short of a full set. And not to copy Ben Henry, I'm starting a project called Trade Me Anything!

Here's how it will work: I'm offering up for trade a large list of red letter back parallels, and in return for the card of your choice, you can send me anything. Anything. Cards would be great, but I'm not limiting the trades just to that. I'd especially appreciate any of the cards I neet to finish the base set, but don't feel compelled to. (Perhaps this idea came to me after watching the Wonder Years "McCovey is off the table" episode. I just didn't want to be such a Paul Pfeiffer on this one.) I'm also offering for trade some of the Generation Now cards, but the only catch is that if you want one of these, you have to send me a Prince Fielder Generation Now in return.

Here's the process:
1. Check out the list of available cards below. Select one you want.
2. Send me an email with your choice of card at
3. I will reply to you as to the card's availability. First come, first serve. I will include my mailing address.
4. When I confirm the card of your choice, pick out one of your own cards or anything else you want to send me. A few guidelines about what you can't send: Nothing that should really be in the garbage, nothing perishable, and nothing illegal. (Notice I didn't say nothing immoral.)
5. Send me whatever is was you picked out. Don't tell me what it is before you send it, I'd like to have it be a surprise! Include a SASE or you won't be getting your card.
6. When I receive your item, I will take a picture of the trade materials and post the happy couple on my blog, and then I will send you the card.
